MøTHERSHIP strongly encourages all passengers to express their individuality through fashion statement & dance moves.

MOTHERSHIP also strictly enforces The Galactic Friendly Code: DS(203) & GG(102.4) which states that all passengers must board with radical acceptance and inclusion for all travelers. Passengers who show signs of prejudice or negativity will be de-boarded immediately.

Now, get ready to blast off. Ooº˚
